1971 2wd Great Motor Carriage..... Sprucing up my Jimmy!

I have been looking for a 2wd Blazer or Jimmy for quite some time, I finally scored! It was a long drawn out scenario of several conversations, then the owner almost changed his mind about selling, then the deal was back on, they the freight company flaked out, then I found another, then another etc, etc, etc....
Finally she landed, and I couldn't be more pleased! It was originally a 4wd, 2 owner Jimmy, the condition is amazing, we cannot find any surface rust on the frame, all panels look to be original, even has the factory tape over the seam sealer!
Let the fun begin! So far I have new bumpers, Flaming River column, drop spindles, Classic instruments cluster, new trim, the GMC hood emblems, billet tail and side lights, Raceline wheels 20x12 & 20x8.5 ordered, a Slightly" modified 6.0 LS with 4L80E tranny waiting on this Jewel!
